I do not know RWJ's endowment portfolio, but the two of my projects RWJ funded several years ago had nothing to do with NRT or even smoking cessation. One was http://smokefreemovies.ucsf.edu" target="_blank";SmokeFree Moves, an ongoing project that is getting smoking out of youth-rated films. This is important prevention work because onscreen smoking in the largest reason kids start to smoke.   The other was http://tobaccoscam.ucsf.edu" target="_blank";TobaccoScam, which exposed the tobacco industry's secret financing of the National Restaurant Association (and other groups) to use them as fronts to (eventually unsuccessfully) oppose smokefree laws (just as the tobacco companies are trying to hide behind http://tobacco.ucsf.edu/prop-29-opponents-california-taxpayers-assn-and-... target="_blank";CalTax, http://tobacco.ucsf.edu/americans-prosperity-just-another-group-fronting... for Prosperity, and other groups to obscure their roles in running the No on 29 campaign).
